Author: McCaffrey, Sarah.
Source: Fire Management Today. Winter,69(1): 9-12.
Description: An important component of the wildland fire problem in the United States is the growing number of people living in high fire hazard areas. How people in these areas contribute to fire risk--or potentially decrease it--will be shaped by their attitudes and beliefs toward different fuel treatment approaches. Understanding the issues and concerns that influence public acceptance of different fuels management methods, whether on public or private land, is crucial information for any fire and fuels management effort.
